Hawk HP+ compatible?

Hi,

I've been looking into replacement brake pads, and am looking for something that's got great initial bite, and won't fade. The Hawk HP+ seems like a solid pad, however I am unsure if they're compatible with my MINI. I have a 2015 Cooper S 2 door Hardtop. Will these pads work with the OEM brake system? I don't have the JCW brake kit. The Hawk website shows Part#: HB560N.677, and HB574N.636 as compatible with 2015 Cooper S models. However, when I check these part numbers with other auto parts store websites, they say that these pads are not compatible with my vehicle.

If anyone could confirm if the HP+ are compatible that would be great! Thanks!

No those part numbers are NOT correct for an F56. Hawk hasn't given us any F56 pads yet. But personally I've never been a Hawk fan as we've never had good luck with them. We use the EBC reds for street cars

And if you want more aggressive the yellows handle more heat, but not as much cold bite

Otherwise the Gloc pads are a great choice, but a higher price tag

Thank you for your reply! I was also looking at the EBC Yellostuff's as an alternative. I'm also looking to upgrade to a good set of slotted rotors as well. I see you sell Zimmerman, and your own brand of rotors. However, I have also been looking at the StopTech rotors. Do you know if these are any good? https://www.ecstuning.com/b-stoptech...16866297kt3kt/

I've not had good luck with the stoptech,powerslot,or centric rotors so I avoid them.

Also slotted rotors on a street car a waste of money as they are not needed and we actually find them to wear the pads a bit faster. With modern pad technology they are not nearly as effective as they were 20yrs ago as older pads needed so much more gas venting. Also plain face rotors are so much more quiet.
